Fire Safety in Nursing Facilities: Participant's Coursebook.
Walker (Bonnie) and Associates, Inc., Crofton, MD.
Fewer people die in nursing facility fires than in fires occurring in other places where older people live. Fire remains, however, a significant threat in nursing facilities. This book is centered around six "modules" that present a fire safety training program for managers and staff in nursing homes. These modules present the following information: (1) The Need for Fire Safety; (2) Fire Behavior; (3) Human Factors in Fire Safety; (4) Fire Emergency Planning; (5) Fire Hazards; and (6) Fire Safety Devices. Each module concludes with several multiple-choice questions which summarize content. The booklet concludes with a description of the goals and workings of the National Fire Safety Certification System. (JE)
